Amhrán na bhFiann

...de Radio Telefís Éireann:

“An Post has issued a new stamp marking the centenary of the national anthem, Amhrán na bhFiann. The 55c stamp shows a girls' choir from Coláiste losagáin in Stillorgan, Co Dublin alongside an illustration of the national flag.
Originally written in English by Peadar Kearney in 1907, the 'Soldier's Song' was later translated into the Irish language by Liam Ó Rinn. Peadar Kearney, along with Patrick Heeney, also wrote the music.”
